Observing Well

More than once I’ve walked away from our refrigerator or pantry unable to find what I’m looking for. After confirming with Jill that the item is definitely where it’s supposed to be, I’ll return to find it about 4 inches from my face.

Sadly, I find that same principle holds true when I consider more significant things in my life, especially as it concerns the people around me.

Do I see my neighbor struggling with a task next door?

Does it bother me that my words have been careless and caused hurt?

Do I notice how much of my time is spent absorbed in my own world when I could be playing with my kids or talking with my wife?

Do I care?
